Sarasota, FL, January 31, 2018 - ABC7’s own John Scalzi & Linda Larsen are the stars this Valentine’s Day at The Players Centre on Feb. 14, 2018 at 7:30pm for the moving play Love Letters - a simple stage reading by A. R. Gurney that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A Players Centre fundraiser, this moving piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down. Over the years, more than 50 actors of all ages have bejeweled the crown of this humble play including Elaine Stritch, Jason Robards, Stockard Channing, Swoosie Kurtz, Christopher Walken, Christopher Reeve, Sigourney Weaver, Charlton Heston, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Earl Jones. Come and support OUR local celebrities as they walk you through the joy, humor and tears of a love that never dies.
Directed by Helen Holliday, lighting design by Matt Neier and sound by Josh Linderman, this lovely piece of theatre is perfect for a romantic night out.
Tickets are limited and can be obtained online, or by calling or visiting The Players Centre Box Office at 941-365-2494.
